With vaccinations readily available, COVID-19 seems to be slowing down. Although we’ll surely miss the days spent working in our PJs (or half PJs, half office attire) and baking fresh bread weekly, we’ve definitely missed some stuff outside the front door.
We did without dining out, watching movies at the theater, visiting theme parks, and going on vacation. We missed haircuts, manicures, and massages. We even skipped regular doctor visits like annual physicals and dental cleanings for the safety of ourselves and medical professionals.
As the world slowly returns to ‘normal, we are reentering our lives with a sense of urgency. It feels like months’ worth of seeing family, doctor’s visits, and heading into the office need to be made up as quickly as possible. However, the stress of the pandemic has taken a toll on all of us, mentally, physically, and socially.
Whether you’re starting to notice a few new wrinkles after staring at your face on Zoom for a year, or feeling unlike yourself after gaining a few pounds, or just want to share your smile with the world, we offer several options to help you feel like yourself again.
If this feels like you, you are not alone. There are several plastic surgery options that have skyrocketed to popularity as we return to a normal life.
Looking for a non-invasive way to address the “quarantine 15” that’s faster and easier than diet and exercise? SculpSure is a non-invasive fat removal treatment that uses heat to melt fat cells, which will be naturally flushed away by the body.
This treatment, as short as about 25 minutes, can tackle fat in the front or sides of the abdomen, as well as the inner or outer thighs, with results in as little as 6 to 12 weeks.
With a ring light and the right makeup, you can transform your at-home look to “Zoom professional”, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ready for your close-up. Luckily, there’s a quick and easy treatment to make your lips look full and gorgeous, in life and during your close-up.
Minimally invasive lip injections like Juvederm, Restylane Kysse, or Restylane Silk are all good choices. For one thing, you’ll see immediate results with dermal fillers made from naturally occurring substances like collagen or hyaluronic acid.
If you are looking for a more permanent lip plumping solution, consider lip implants. This is a short, minimally invasive lip augmentation procedure where silicone strips are implanted in your lips. This procedure is safe, effective, and can produce natural or dramatic results.
Looking for a subtle enhancement? The lip flip is another great option that involves an injection of Botox or Dysport to relax the muscle just above the lip, causing the upper lip to roll out just a little, plumping your pout.
Age, heredity, and pandemic stress are not always kind, but there are so many cosmetic procedures that help to update your appearance and boost your confidence. A facelift is one of the best ways to rejuvenate your appearance so you can look the age you feel!
An upper face can help to combat heavy frown lines, while a midface lift can treat everything from under-eye bags to significant nasolabial creases, creating a rested, youthful appearance. A lower facelift, including the neck, can firm up the jawline and return the long, lovely neck of your youth. Or you could go for a full facelift to see incredible results all around.
While this treatment isn’t a non-invasive option, you can’t argue with the speedy results. Whether you’re storing excess fat in the belly, buttocks, thighs, arms, face, or elsewhere, liposuction can give you the confidence to put on a swimsuit—or the drive to continue with other weight loss efforts.
As the name implies, liposuction relies on a suction tube to remove fat, which can help to slim, smooth, and firm problem areas. As you heal over one to three months, you’ll see incredible results.
If you’ve noticed your skin looking dull or you’ve been dealing with stress-related acne, a simple refresh with an exfoliating and hydrating HydraFacial could deliver the immediate results you seek with virtually zero downtime. Alternatively, you could try a Vivace microneedling procedure to stimulate collagen, treat fine lines and acne scars, and shrink pores.
Whether you’re looking for a quick refresh, a longer-lasting rejuvenation, or a way to feel like your old self, Dr. Beverly Fischer and the expert team at the Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery can help you find the perfect solution.
